The shark has been indeed jumped.

OK, where do I begin with how horrible this episode is? Jaleel White in a stunt casting role that vanishes 3 minutes in? The incredibly obvious ripoff of SNL? The blatantly obvious red herrings? The "Castle" skit? The "i don't even have words for it" Carly Rae Jepson appearance? That was apparently necessary to show the two of them dancing, even though neither character would have the slightest idea who she was (Even Alexis would have better taste!)? The champagne bit? Martha having a crisis?

After last week's superb episode, where we had multiple possible bad guys, a great setting, and a few good twists, this was such a letdown! The actors are better than this, so give us better, or, because Stana Katic hasn't signed her contract, just let the show die after next week. Let us remember it at it's best, not with this kind of junk.
